When can I make my picks?

Your bracket will be available to complete after the NBA announces which teams will be participating in the tournament, and will be open for picks until Monday, August 17, five minutes before the first game begins that day. No one may submit a bracket after that deadline.

Can I change my picks?

You can update your bracket until August 17, up until 5 minutes before the first game begins that day. At that time, brackets will lock and cannot be updated again.

Are the play-in games included in this contest?

While there are tentative play-in tournaments on August 15 and August 16 to determine who will play in the playoff series, there are no points associated with these play-in tournaments. You may see there are two teams listed on a few of the bracket spots, but those will be updated with the winner of the play-in tournament.
